STANDARD DIMENSIONS:

  • Thickness:  1/2", 3/4", & 1"
  • Width:  4' & 5'
  • Length:  8' & 12'

Note: 1/2" thickness is not available in the high temp graphite or fiberglass panels.

 

FABRICATION:

Panels are fabricated by hand laying two (2) plys of epoxy impregnated woven Graphite or Fiberglass fabric on either side on the aluminum honeycomb core.  Panels are then press cured, trimmed, and post cured.

FINISH:

  • Peel ply on both faces

FEATURES:

  • High strength and stiffness at a lower weight and cost than solid laminates
  • Low coefficient of thermal expansion
  • Long term stability at ambient and high temperatures
  • Removable peel ply provides a bond ready surface for subsequent bonding
  • Typical delivery of 3-4 weeks
  • Honeycomb panels can be pre-cut and delivered in kits
  • Customer configuration available upon request

 

APPLICATION:

Honeycomb panels are commonly chosen for their high strength to weight ratio and lower cost compared to laminate panels.  Because of its excellent dimensional stability and elevated temperatures, very low coefficient of thermal expansion, and its light weight, the composite tooling industry used honeycomb panels for eggcrate, truss, and master model back-up structures made of graphite or requiring elevated heat cycles.
